Begin your time with God in prayer:
Praise God for who He is. Confess any sin so that nothing blocks your fellowship with Him. Ask God to use the Spirit and the Word to transform your life. Yield your will to God’s will.
Let God’s Word penetrate your head and your heart:
Read Revelation 5:1-14
Who did the elders find to open the scroll (vs.5)?
What made Him worthy (vs.9)?
Who will be coming together to worship in heaven (vs.11-13)?
"And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ." Philippians 1:6
One day, every creature in heaven and on earth will worship the One who sits on the throne and the Lamb who was slain, including you! If we struggle with worship today, it’s usually because we don’t really know God, we are worshipping other things, or we don’t know how to worship. Like John and Isaiah, when we see God for who He is, our natural response will be to worship Him.
Apply God’s Word to your life:
· Receive Jesus.
· Remember the price He paid for you with an attitude of thanksgiving.
· Get to know the God who is worthy of your worship.
· Celebrate your redemption daily.
Father, You are worthy of my worship. Jesus, thank you for purchasing my salvation with Your blood. Forgive me for making other things and other people more important than You. I want to seek You, in order to know You, not just know about You. I surrender. Amen.

And the four living creatures said, “Amen!” and the elders fell down and worshiped.’” (Revelation 5:11-14)
